This weekend was spent like most. Netflix, something new to love watching thanks to an awesome recommendation, amazing meeting with the crit girls on Skype, and an afternoon hanging with my mom.
Starting with the mom: We went and saw the area's sort of new Philharmonic Orchestra playing classical music that has appeared in a classic cartoon. Then played clips of the specific cartoon. It was pretty darn cool! They also gave facts about the pieces, cartoons, etc. I had no idea Fantasia was so old! And the sorcerer in it was modeled lightly after Walt Disney himself! Anyway, it was a sweet time.
The new Netflix watch this weekend was Veronica Mars. Oh. My. I love this show!! So much so I tuned out the hub's protest about watching shows about teenagers for 12 year olds. Made him give it a chance, and he soon after stopped fighting it. I'm inclined to say he actually began to get interested by Sunday, but I doubt he would ever admit it ;) And Kristen Bell is just too adorbs.
Lastly leads to a question for you all. My fabulously talented crit ladies are too smart and kind to me. They are really whipping my novel into shape! (and provided more LOLs than I can remember) But Lady M pointed out my love for cliches sayings. I use them because people can understand them easily... And also when I can't think of another way to say something. I have 3 I'm interested in changing. But I have hit a wall. (See there? Another one. There are other ways to say that that I can think of, but it's sometimes easier and less distracting to just use a cliche. It isn't always wrong, but Lady M is right about not doing it too much.)
So, how do you solve the cliche saying problem?
How was everyone else's weekend?
